The M.A. in Global Development and Justice (MAGDJ) program prepares students to work across the nexus of justice, peacebuilding, and transformational community development work. Together with biblical insights and best practices, the degree program prepares community development leaders, cross-cultural workers, justice leaders, and humanitarian specialists in cross-sector vocational skills and opportunities. The curriculum seeks to develop compassionate leaders and administrators, who are trauma-informed and prepared to support human flourishing in whatever context they work in. In Global Development and Justice, students are prepared to work in the United States and around the world. Our faculty think and act locally and globally, recognizing that both theory and practice must be sensitive to whatever context our students are preparing to work in.
This academic experience is available fully on-campus (or online) and provides you with the opportunity to be part of a learning community as you study together with a cohort of students and are mentored by professors who have both academic expertise and practical experience. Through this on-campus program, you will connect with colleagues just as passionate about improving communities as you are. If you are inspired by holistic, sustainable solutions that build capacity in vulnerable communities in the U.S. or abroad, our on-campus MAGDJ program is designed for you. The MAGDJ program has distinct academic tracks available for both experienced workers and those just getting started.
